  • SPORTS MOMENT: 1995 Ohio State-Notre Dame game. Close Second: 2002 Ohio State-Michigan. In The Shoe for both!

    Played plenty of sports in High School, with very few truly great moments, unless getting into an all-out brawl with a private Catholic school during our soccer game counts.

I'll be real honest here and say that if I am going to be disappointed with Thad on anything, it's not recruiting. Would it be great to win with Ohio players? Sure. But, for some reason, when it comes to basketball, I don't care nearly as much about the in state talent as I do football. Basketball recruiting and football recruiting are very different animals. I wouldn't be surprised if you saw similar, not exact, trends at UNC, Kansas, Michigan State, Florida, and other elite programs. To win, you need to recruit well on a national level, and bring in the best players that fit your system, culture, and needs in any given class. So, if Ohio produces 3 top 50 players in one year, and they're all capable of really only playing the 3 or 4 in college, but OSU has only two available schollies, with no needs at the 3 or 4, they may only take one of those prospects, or even none. This is especially true if a superior player that position who is from out of state wants to play for the Buckeyes.

I agree that both Kyrie and LeBron are awesome, but can you imagine still having their picks, LeBron, Kyrie, and Wiggins? That's a team that wins the East at least 4 of the next 5 years.

Comment 26 Mar 2015

It would be a huge mistake if the Cavs let him walk at the end of the season given all of the draft picks they surrendered

If they fail to win the title and Love walks, that might be the most Cleveland thing ever. I'd hate to see them having mortgaged the future for him, and then get almost nothing out of it.

Comment 26 Mar 2015

Oh, I think yours was pretty accurate too. I just wanted to make sure that were talking about the same person.

Comment 26 Mar 2015

The Knicks are the type of big-market team that appeals to Love.

The Knicks think they're relevant.

The Knicks are the type of big-market team that appeals to NO ONE (especially as long as Melo is there). Do the Knicks even have any $$$ under the cap to pull this off? This is just silly.

I was always taught that if you're not uncomfortable, you're not challenging yourself. If you're not challenging yourself, you're not growing. If you're not growing, you're falling behind. If you fall far enough, you simply get left behind.

I love the idea of getting these guys out of their comfort zone and making them grow. There also two good things to help battle complacency for this version of the Bucks - 1. They'll hear all year long regarding TCU, and how they deserved a shot; 2. Despite winning a National Championship, they did not go undefeated. There is still room to improve over last year by becoming the first 15-0 team in history, and breaking the school record for consecutive victories, as well as finally garnering some individual awards and accolades.

Did they also promise that you would make $20,000 a month as long as you had 10 runners beneath you? 

Sadly, I must admit that I am at least a little bit interested in trying their products, but have no interest in becoming involved with any type of distribution, including even buying from a distributor, but it's expensive as hell.

Comment 25 Mar 2015

Grizz haven't been the same since the Jeff Green trade. They do too much to accommodate him on both ends of the floor.

LeBron's only got 16, 9, and 7. What's wrong with him? Jordan and Kobe would have 75 by now!

Comment 25 Mar 2015

I saw the same two teams play (albeit only a handful of these players were involved) a little over 7 years ago. Sat 11 rows from the floor at FedEx Forum. Greatest birthday present ever! Conley and LeBron in person = awesome.

Comment 25 Mar 2015

"Only the guys that win get a chance to get better."

With so few wins, Michigan won't be improving any time soon.

Comment 25 Mar 2015

Are you talking about their actual fight song, or Rocky Top?

Because, with all due a respect, and remember I'm saying with all due respect, a fight song written for the banjo ain't worth a velvet painting of a whale and a dolphin gettin' it on.

Congrats TwoFace!

Fatherhood is the single greatest job any man can have. There is nothing like the love that you will always feel for that little girl! Glad all are healthy, and wishing you luck on getting any sleep you can in the coming weeks.

what school takes raw players with upside and routinely turns them into pros?

UK routinely takes kids with upside who would have been drafted directly out of high school and turns them into pros...

Comment 24 Mar 2015

As long as it's not Coach Cal, I'm good with almost anywhere. I'd prefer OSU, but since I live in Tennessee, closer to home wouldn't be bad either (as long as it's not Memphis).
